Ravens select LB Brown in 2nd-round of draft

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -  

   The Baltimore Ravens have selected Kansas State inside linebacker Arthur Brown with the 56th overall pick in the NFL draft.
 
   Baltimore moved up in a trade with Seattle to get Brown, a 6-foot, 242-pounder who served as a team captain with the Wildcats after transferring from Miami.
 
   Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta calls Brown "a four-down linebacker who's very good in coverage."
 
   To get Brown, the Ravens gave Seattle their second-round pick at No. 62, a fifth and a sixth-round selection.
 
   Brown has a chance to fill the middle linebacker spot vacated by Ray Lewis, who retired after Baltimore won the Super Bowl in February.
 
   Brown says, "It's an opportunity to play a great role in the defense scheme, like Ray did."
